Designs For Education is an experienced, specialist company developing innovative products for the Early Years and Childcare sector.

We supply a wide range of school classroom furniture, nursery play equipment, Early Years Foundation Stage and K1 resources to make the day to day challenges faced by managers and practitioners a little easier whilst creating a comfortable nurturing environment in which little people can develop safely.

Following consultation with Early Years professionals about the recent changes to Early Years practice we have developed products to support and promote the delivery of the highest quality provision.

Meet the Team

There is now a small but strong team behind the scenes ready to answer all your concerns and queries.
